Cubs 4, Astros 1
W: Volstad (3-10) L: Rodriguez (1-10) SV: Marmol (19)
Well, the Astros ended their 1-game win streak behind the pitching of Dallak Kuechel. I am unsure why
Mills DeFrancesco pulled him, but he did.
I also know this was one of the longest games I’ve ever attended. It is one thing if exciting things are happening, but NOTHING was really happening. Seriously, the game ended at 10:47 or something. On a damm school night. I can’t do that anymore. I did no homework last night which means I have twice as much to do today. And since I left work early to go to the game, I’ll probably end up staying until close to 7:00. I really don’t think I’m that important.
But back to the game. One thing DeFrancesco and Mills have in common, at least last night was the theory “Everyone Plays, Everyone Gets a Snowcone.” I guess they want to see what these kids can do at the major league level, but the 300 of us left in the stands just wanted the game to end.
I’ll have another recap of a Cubs/Astros game and I have to admit I’ll be glad not to see this bunch of idiots again. I know we will be replacing Cubs fans with Red Sox fans but the Red Sox fans won’t be around as much since it will be a different division.
For conversations that happened during the game, check out the Game Zone. Chuck was being a bit fruity.
